Tweet Surrender

If you’ve ever wanted to watch Henry Rollins lip sync to a 70s classic or simply find out who bumped into Uri Geller in an unspecified branch of B&Q, take a deep breath and read on.

‘A yawn is a silent scream for coffee’? That sounds like the sort of thing Voltaire would’ve written, had he worked in a café. On a caffeine-related note, we wonder if Steven’s tried Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer’s Rockin’ & Roastin’ coffee yet?
